Pet Sitter in Kelowna

Greetings from Kelowna! We are a newly retired couple in our mid 50's who discovered the joy of pet and house sitting approximately 4 years ago! We are loving every minute of it! We have plenty of experience, with 63 pet sits over the past four years, for a total of 26 families. We are loving, honest, reliable and love caring for pets!! A bit about ourselves...Duane retired as a Medical Social Worker after 28 years in September, 2014, and Catherine worked as an Optometric Assistant until February, 2016. We have two grown children aged 22 and 24. In September, 2015, our son entered UBC Vancouver to complete his Masters in Physiotherapy and our daughter is employed with Interior Health as a Therapist Assistant in Kelowna. Our daughter maintains our home in our absence. We are pursuing housesits in order to provide us with a change in our regular routines and scenery while exploring different areas as well as to help fulfill our love for pets...basically, it has become our "hobby". We purchased, and still own, our home in Kelowna since moving here in 1987. Now that we are both retired, we are free to experience various house sitting opportunities while enjoying the company of furry friends. We are particularly interested in exploring other communities within B.C. and other Canadian provinces before travelling outside Canada. We both love animals and have always wanted to have a pet, however our son and daughter have allergies, so this was never possible. We believe that a pet is best cared for in their own home and familiar surroundings while their owners are away. We would like to help facilitate this option for you by providing the absolute best of care for your beloved pet! We began housesitting in January, 2013, and have really broadened our horizons. After caring for a wide variety of dogs and cats, as well as some farm animals, we have learned a lot about animal behaviour and habits which is part of the fun for us! We have owned our own home for almost 30 years and are very familiar with the routine maintenance and repairs that go along with it. We have also owned several rental properties which we managed ourselves. We take great pride in keeping our home clean and tidy and treat all homes that we have stayed in the same way. We are a mature and extremely responsible couple whom you could have complete faith in while you are away. We would take excellent care of your home, pets and property, as though they were our own. A common response we get when the homeowner returns is "our home looks cleaner than when we left!" We are both avid walkers and would ensure that all pets receive the love, care and exercise that they need. We would be more than happy to maintain close communication with you while you are away. We like to keep you up to date with cute photos/videos of your pets on a regular basis. We realize that having someone care for your home and pets requires a great deal of trust and we want to ensure that you are able to go away with complete faith that everything will be well taken care of. We would be able to furnish you with excellent references. We consider the opportunity to care for pets in their own surroundings to be a true privilege and appreciate the great amount of trust that is placed in us while the owners travel.
